Firework Trees

‘Fireworks’ of light shoot through the tree branches, bringing the air to colourful life, all set to an atmospheric winter soundtrack with the sounds of exploding and dazzling fireworks.


A group of real trees were dressed with over 2,000 individually controlled lights to create the sights and sounds of a real firework display as part of the famous Christmas at Kew winter lights festival. As the sparks of light shot from branch to branch and along the ground from tree to tree, they crackled and popped like a real firework display, supported by ‘explosions’ of coloured light that filled the skies behind them.
